The St Michael banner in Mottram Church
The St Michael banner in Mottram Church
The St Michael banner was completed in 1983, being used for the first
time in the Anniversary procession that year. It was embroidered by a team of
parishioners to a design by Elizabeth Carrington. The whole took twelve months
to complete and symbolises God's defeat of the powers of evil in the victory of
Michael over the Devil as recorded in the Book of Revelation.
